Heavy use of iPads causing children to lose basic skills in the real world

An increasing number of infants do not have the motor skills necessary to play with building blocks because of an “addiction” to tablet computers and smartphones, according to a teacher’s organization.

Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported that the group notes that many children aged 3-4 years old can “swipe a screen,” but they have little to no dexterity in their fingers because they have spent too many hours glued to an iPad or other tablet screen.

Members of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) are also warning that some older children are not able to complete traditional pen-and-paper exams because their memories have eroded due to overexposure to screen-based technology. As such, they are calling on parents to limit their children’s tablet usage and even shut off the Wi-Fi during the evening to help address the problem.

The recommendations were made after study figures showed that the proportion of households with tablet computers more than doubled from 20 percent to 51 percent last year.

☆ Tuna is same like last week. Yellow fin tuna is available and can get big eye tuna sometimes but it is Ok tuna and no toro in it. Many people are expecting Negitoro-Don but I cannot make it. So, toro means Blue fin Oh-toro only. This is farmed in Australia and frozen. Some people like this one and I just sell it. To be honest, this oh-toro is not my standard. Other restaurants buy Fresh farmed blue fin tuna from Japan or buy farmed other places blue fin. I tasted those before but those were also not my standard. I really feel the X-Day is coming near future. X-Day? The end of wild tuna supply.  Many people say “Don’t say that.” But it will come and I feel it.  I ‘ve been selling tuna for 18 years and I can tell.

☆ Uni supply is getting better. I have some and still buy from Japan. So, I have uni almost every day but not much quantity.

☆  Ocean Trout (Rainbow Trout) is not available this week because of bad quality. It was not fresh and we returned.

☆ Japanese Fish Omakase is 4 kinds of items. I have Isaki ( Three line Grunt), Kurodai (Black Porgy), Teen Seabass and Hobo (Sea Robin). They are all white fish.

☆ I made a new ramen. This is dipping style and the sauce is sesame miso flavor.

☆ Masters was over. Sorry for Kuchar. Looking forward to see the victory next year.

Vitamin E: a skin-boosting antioxidant that plays many roles in the body

Like vitamins A and C, vitamin E is an important antioxidant whose primary role in the body is to scavenge free radicals. Free radicals (which are produced by air and water pollution, cigarette smoke, radiation and the consumption of processed foods) are rogue atoms or atomic groups that have lost at least one electron, forcing them to steal electrons from neighboring molecules in the hope of stabilizing themselves. Unsurprisingly, this causes havoc in the body. In fact, unchecked free radical activity is a leading cause of accelerated aging as well as degenerative diseases like cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and cataracts. Since vitamin E can neutralize these free radicals, it can help prevent these serious diseases while ensuring that our skin remains smooth and radiant (this is why vitamin E is added to so many skin care products).

Vitamin E plays large number of roles in our cardiovascular systems. Firstly, it aids red blood cell formation, ensuring that our tissues receive enough oxygen (which, in turn, guards us from anemia). Secondly, it thins the blood by widening our blood vessels, preventing our platelets from clumping together and creating clots. Thirdly, it prevents “bad” LDL cholesterol from being oxidized, which prevents clogged arteries. For these reasons, high levels of vitamin E in the body have been linked to reductions in non-fatal heart attacks and strokes in subjects. Vitamin E is also shown to reduce complications relating to diabetes.

Like most other vitamins, especially the B vitamins, vitamin E helps maintain cell function. For example, vitamin E can aid cell differentiation — a process of turning generic cells into the specific types of cells our bodies need, resulting in improved cell communication. Of course, proper cell communication is essential if we want our bodies to maintain proper immune function, heal damaged tissues and perform countless other tasks correctly. Additionally, vitamin E is associated with gene regulation, meaning it helps moderate the performance and production of certain enzymes, proteins and hormones in our bodies.

Vitamin E is contained in Tofu, Spinach, Almond, Sun flower seeds, Avocado, Shrimp, rainbow trout, Olive oil, Broccoli, Squash and others. See this site in detail. http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/vitamin-E.php

Mediterranean Diet Cuts Type 2 Diabetes Risk by a Third

A Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) cut the risk for developing type 2 diabetes by about a third among adults at high risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared with a low-fat diet, a new analysis finds.

The results, from the subgroup of subjects in the Spanish cardiovascular prevention study Prevencion con Dieta Mediterránea (PREDIMED) who did not have diabetes at baseline, were published January 6 in the Annals of Internal Medicine by Jordi Salas-Salvado, MD, PhD, from Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Reus, Spain, and colleagues.

“The PREDIMED trial provides strong evidence that long-term adherence to a Mediterranean diet supplemented with EVOO without energy restrictions…results in a substantial reduction in the risk for type 2 diabetes among older persons with high cardiovascular risk,” Dr. Salas-Salvado and colleagues write.

The Mediterranean diet is high in fat (30% to 40% of total calories) from vegetable sources such as olive oil and nuts and relatively low in dairy products. The diet also commonly includes sauces with tomato, onions, garlic, and spices and moderate wine consumption.

“Of note, this dietary pattern is palatable and has a high potential for long-term sustainability, with obvious public-health implications for primary prevention of diabetes,” the investigators write.

Commenting on the study for Medscape Medical News, William S. Yancy Jr, MD, associate professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina, said that the findings demonstrate overall benefit for the Mediterranean diet, but not necessarily in comparison with a true low-fat diet.

“These results are fairly convincing that the Mediterranean diet prevents the onset of diabetes compared with a usual diet,” he observed, noting that the “low-fat” diet used in the study was actually closer to a “usual diet” because adherence to the low-fat diet in the study’s control arm wasn’t good.

“The Mediterranean diet may ultimately be found to be healthier than a low-fat diet, but this study did not effectively test that,” said Dr. Yancy, whose research focus is obesity and nutrition.

Nonetheless, he believes the study lends support to a Mediterranean diet prescription. “It may not be definitive, but it is a very reasonable recommendation, because we are not aware of any harms from the Mediterranean diet — except maybe cost or lack of familiarity/convenience to Americans — and there is a growing body of evidence showing its benefits,” he told Medscape Medical News.
